WADENA — Tri-County Health Care is now offering omicron-specific booster doses. This new round of vaccination is considered bivalent and targets the initial strain of COVID-19 and current variants.

This next phase of vaccination targets people 12 and older. This age group can receive the omicron-specific vaccine two months after getting the primary series or booster dose.

Omicron-specific boosters are available at the Wadena Clinic. There are plans to offer this vaccine at other Tri-County Health Care facilities in the future, according to a Tri-County Health Care news release.

Tri-County Health Care will offer the omicron vaccine Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information and scheduling, call 218-631-3510.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
